Paternoster is a sought after tourist destination and is known for Crayfish and the white-washed fishermen’s cottages. The remarkable coastline of jagged cliffs and white boulders makes this one of the most beautiful beaches on the West Coast of South Africa.

Be very weary of the water, its ice cold, even the sharks stay away. Never too cold for the occasionally visit of Dolphins and Whales.
